IRON MOUNTAIN — Lucille (Aimone) Snowden, 93, died peacefully in her sleep Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021, at the Florence Health Services in Florence, Wis.
She succumbed to a long and courageous battle with advanced dementia.
Lucille was born on June 4, 1927, in Iron Mountain to the late Theresa and Ernest Aimone. She grew up in Iron Mountain’s North Side. She married George Snowden in 1949, and together they raised three children. In 1975, they started an adventure of a lifetime, moving to Anaheim, Calif., where they enjoyed all that sunny Southern California had to offer. They spent many days enjoying Main Street at Disneyland, and many evenings cheering on their beloved Anaheim Angels. Lucille loved knitting, scrapbooking, and entertaining family and friends. Most importantly, she loved spending time with her adored children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She leaves behind a daughter, Darlene (Gary) Van Dusen of Kingsford, and sons, Freddie Snowden of Yorba Linda, Calif. and Teddie (Shirley) Snowden of Riverside, Calif. She is survived by all her siblings: sisters, Clarice Aimone of Iron Mountain, and Joyce Landfield of Winnetka, Ill., and brothers, Carl (Carol) Aimone of Tomball, Texas and Ernie Aimone of Chicago. Lucille was blessed with eight grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and many beloved nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her parents; her husband, George; son-in-law, David Champeau; and granddaughter, Lisa Wittenberg.
Due to the pandemic, a memorial service will take place in the spring and will be announced.
